The Straight And Narrow Way
Matthew 7:13-14 (KJB) Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
There are many teaching that there is more than one way to heaven found in this world. However, these verses make it clear that there is only one avenue leading to eternity with God. The narrow gate is the only pathway to eternal life. The wide entrance leads a person to certain destruction rather than to fellowship with God forever.
Jesus often used parables in His short time of earthly teaching to reach hearts with His gospel message. In these verses, He is clear with His news about the narrow gate and the wide gate. It is a simple instruction that can be easily understood and applied in the life of every sincere child of God as they sojourn in this world.
The way to eternal life with God is narrow, and the gate is naturally straight. This statement starkly contrasts popular corrupt teaching, which often declares the way to God is broad and the gate wide; however, this kind of crooked pathway only leads to inevitable eternal demise.
